Track Name: If This Is The Last Night
Oh, my bones
my weary bones
my weak and beaten bones, what can I say?
Oh my bones,
such brittle bones
was it you who took me apart what did you say?

Is it desperate love after dark
with the windows open, all the lights turned on?
making perfect love in the dark
light a candle, wake the neighbors,
let the bells be rung, let the bells be rung!

If it's the last night
on earth

Empty homes
blank windows and hollow rooms
the architects despair at our state
It's not what we know
an apocalypse or shadow
If we knew that this was it,
what would we trade...

for that perfect love in the dark?
light your candles!
wake your neighbors!
Let the bells be rung!
The bells be rung!

If it's the last night
on earth
Track Name: We Are All Actors
Oh, we are all actors
Oh, we are the birds and feathers
Oh, we crave simple pleasures

Oh, write words as a victim
Oh, then drive home to our mansions
Oh, we are golden and handsome

Oh, we are what we own
Oh, because nothing is real
Oh, unless it makes us feel so...
so what?
Track Name: Sixteen (Killed Cassette Mix)
So you're sixteen
and you're hasty
always wanting
to be
away with someone
to somewhere

Well, everybody loves you, and nobody hates you
for the first time

And like a cigarette
or a Friday
You're wanting
always, forever
ever knowing
that someday
it will

...well everybody hates you,
and nobody loves you...

it's the last time.
